don't leave any troops in iraq and ditto with afghanistan. get on with governing an america that puts its own citizens first and concentrates on bettering the home country for everybody who lives here. in case you hadn't noticed while you were wasting trillions on useless wars, america has fallen in a pit of overspending, foreclosure and unemployment. john writes the usa needs to get out of iraq as soon as possible. what is the president thinking. the huge budget mess is largely due to the wars in iraq and afghanistan. how can they think of cutting social security or medicare for our seniors and disabled citizens at the cost of these wars? i'm 60 and i feel my future is very uncertain. ter fre arizona writes how many way do i need to respond with no for my reply to be read on air? you got it done. >> i hope that makes terry happy. >> i don't care if it does or not. >> new evidence of the dangerous links between al qaeda leaders and the growing terror threat in somalia. wa can casey anthony expect when she walks out of jail next week. the security and the spectacle >>> new information
of knowledge tied to funding cuts for prevention. monita, let's take it to afghanistan first of all. impeachment talks going on in the afghan parliament took a turn for the worse. >> it's been an interesting week for women in politics. earlier we were talking about the mayor in the phillippines who punched a sheriff. now two mps in the afghan parliament, women who decided to defend a vice president who said said their reputation was tarnished wiin t now. also, they're having discussions about whether or not president karzai should be impeached. he had -- they're questioning the legality of a court that he had set up for those who were questioning -- who wanted to argue the fact that they had lost the elections back last year. so there are a lot of questions surrounding now his -- whether or not he's fit enough to be president. so there's a lot of anger within the afghan parliament. it's very embarrassing as a british prime minister, david cameron was visiting kabul yesterday as well. ali? >> exciting, though. listen to this. this story caught my attention. then i saw the picture, wh
dollars in savings from winding down the wars in iraq and be afghanistan. that would raise the debt ceiling enough to get us through 2012, though boehner's would only take us through the end of the year. last night the president and speaker both aimed to put publish pressure on the other. >> there's no symptom of big government more menacing than our debt. break its grip, and we begin to liberate our economy and our future. >> i'm asking you all to make your voice heard. if you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of congress know. >> reporter: enough people did, presumably supporters as well as opponents, that the speaker's web site crashed along with those of a couple of other republicans and at least one democrat. republicans say the president wants a long-term debt ceiling hike to keep it out of his re-election bid. democrats say the bond rating agencies want a long-term hike. a short-term one, they say, would risk a downgrade of this country's credit rating, and that would hike credit interest rates on everyone. jon: the overwhelming number of calls
in iraq, or afghanistan, by maintaining our current level of troops for the next ten years and nobody believes we'll maintain the current level of troops we have in iraq, or afghanistan, for the next ten years, so, this is phony savings, as is the claimed half trillion dollars in interest savings by not spending the trillions we weren't going to spend otherwise. alisyn: there are reports, obviously, the president invited congressional leaders, democratic and republicans, to the white house tomorrow and there are also reports out yesterday, "the new york times," that the white house has agreed to cut in entitlements. and, sounds like there may be progress, and, room to open the debate? >> there could be, but the question about the entitlement cuts is, are they real? are they likely to be realized and are they sooner rather than later? the president, we need to be on a glide path but for example the president offered, again, from my discussions with people who are knowledgeable about these discussions, between the white house and the congress, is they've offered a trillion dollars worth
in afghanistan. the taliban now says it is responsible for a suicide attack that killed the mayor of kandahar. afghan officials say the assassination happened at the mayor's office just after he arrived for work this morning. the mayor had been mentioned as a person who might replace afghani president's hamid karzai's half brother within karzai's inner circle. >>> we are also on top of a developing story out of south korea. at least 32 people are now dead after heavy rains caused massive landslides. many of those killed were college students who were there doing volunteer work. take a look at this video of rescue crews teaming up trying to save people trapped in the rushing water. the heavy rain also destroyed several buildings. >>> with just six days until the nation's first default, the debt showdown has hit yet another snag. a vote on house speaker john boehner's plan to raise the debt ceiling is postponed until tomorrow. the delay came after a report from the congressional budget office showed that boehner's plan would cut spending by $1 trillion over ten years rather than the $1.2 trilli
